Holiday Decorating and Entertaining Tips

  • Be careful with holiday decorations. Choose decorations that are flame resistant or flame retardant.
  • Keep lit candles away from decorations and other things that can burn
  • Some lights are only for indoor or outdoor use, but not both
  • Replace any string of lights with worn or broken cords or loose bulb connections. Read manufacturer’s instructions for the number of light strands to connect.
  • Use clips, not nails, to hang lights, so the cords do not get damaged
  • Keep decorations away from windows and doors
  • Test your smoke alarms and tell guests about your home fire escape plan
  • Keep children and pets away from lit candles
  • Stay in the kitchen when cooking on the stovetop
  • Ask smokers to smoke outside. Provide large, deep ashtrays for smokers. Wet cigarette butts with water before discarding them.
